Green Beans with Toasted Pecans

Source: Everyday Food, September 2008


  • 1/2 cup pecans, coarsely chopped
  • 3/4 pound green beans, stem ends removed
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • Coarse salt and ground pepper


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Place pecans on a rimmed baking sheet; toast until fragrant, 6 to 7 minutes.

  2. Meanwhile, set a steamer basket in a large saucepan. Fill with enough water to come just below basket; bring to a simmer. Place green beans in basket; cover, and steam until crisp-tender, 5 to 7 minutes.

  3. Transfer green beans to a serving platter; drizzle with oil, and season with salt and pepper. Serve topped with pecans.

    I haven't tried this yet, but I will soon. Another way to get a nice nutty flavor on your green beans is to drizzle them with walnut oil instead of olive oil. As a bonus, walnut oil is very high in omega-3s!
